    Question: What's up with the new language???

    Alright, when did they start using the phrase "walk-off" for just about everything?...

    It has irritated me since I noticed it last year in baseball... "He hit a "walk-off" home run...", "His 'walk-off' stats are great...", etc... Didn't it used to simply be called pinch-hitting?...

    And now, earlier today, I heard some commentary regarding basketball, and they referenced "he hit a walk-off 3-pointer"...

    ...Talk about "irritating"!.... Does it bother anyone else?....

    i always hated when they said "he's out with a toe" or "he's out with a knee"
    how hard is it to say the word injury in that sentence?

    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    But the distance on you "walk off" was only 50 characters...how the hell is that a "walk off"? Maybe a "walk off" to the pitcher's mound.

    Agreed. I only remember it being used for home runs and all of a sudden it's every where.

    For me it's worse when they start every sentence with "I mean".
